Closed Doors, Open Mind, New Chapters

 Inspirational Note:

When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.

Too often we think that when something ends, it's completely over, and that's it. 
But big ups! It's just the beginning, every end has a beginning, every beginning has an end.When a door closes another one flies open.

Too often people dwell in the past hoping that things will change, and that things will change on it's own. Nothing in life changes without some sort of effort.
"Life without a cause is a life without effect." - Paulo Coelho (Novel: Aleph)

Let's all just take this time of moment to just take in all the changes that this world is currently experiencing; in others' lives, and most importantly our own lives. Take in that the world is changing, negatively and positively like life was meant to. Take the moment to understand that time is only an illusion, don't worry about how much time you once had, and how much time you do have. Think about all of which you accomplished in such time, and create a master-plan on exceeding it. Take the time to realize that everything, including all the pain and suffering we've all have to endure was completely essential for our growth, the same as the laughter and love we all share with our fellow people and life itself.

When we close a chapter, another one opens and a new story is told... Live your life as if it were a story, write the introduction, the conflicts and the solutions to all aspects of your life and become the character you set out to create. Be the magic of  your own imagination and creativity, live life as if you were once a child again, dream as if you were in an entirely new world and love like you never loved before. 

Take the time to stop and think, to grab a hold of your thoughts and your feelings, express it, share it with someone dear, scream whenever you're upset. Let it all go, lose control and regain it all back again.  Fall down 7 times, get back 8, we get back up because we know we deserve more, to learn and to grow and to strive like no other. Keep your head up, 2015 is only the beginning.

"Experience is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted." - Randy Pausch

2015, Bring it On.

Creation of Hands that Create (Day 1)

New Years (2015)
1 of 365:

You know, someone or something once told me; To be patient, that one day you will meet people exactly like you...
To this very day, I still ask myself:
'In what world is this whisper coming from? Who is the person who allows me to think these thoughts that clearly isn't entirely one's own thoughts?'
Who allows me to see into this world we call reality and who allows me to dream it?
Who chooses how our life plays out ?
Us or God?

It's not easy finding inspiration is it? Nor is it easy finding what exactly your life purpose is. I guess that's why I wish to blog, to write, to somehow inspire and to make connections and manifest my thoughts into this very reality around me, because my dreams tell me to... But there's a fine-line to that! Dreams are far from this world than we think, but as close as we imagine them to be. Think of a star that shines in the night canvas of the sky, the moon that illuminates over our world casting the very shadow that is "us", the gold crimson ball of life that comes out to shine every waking moment of our lives. What more could we entirely ask for? All is given to us, we have the entire package, the resources to create a masterpiece, in every moment is a gift to be given and received from best of both worlds.

Okay, Let's admit being the person that I am, many times have I allowed those moments go to waste, many times have I sat there and wondered "Am I capable of being who I dream to be?" and honestly? I'll never truly know, Unless! Yes, unless I try, unless I put my beliefs into thoughts, thoughts into words, words into action, actions into habits, habits into values, and finally your values become your DESTINY. (Words inspired by Gandhi) If you're going to fail at something, fail at something you're passionate about, fail at something that will teach you meaning and purpose.

What is your destiny?
But first, what is your beliefs, your thoughts, your words, your action, your habits?
Because that, that creates your destiny...

                                                            You're your own Leonardo Da Vinci, create your own 'Mona Lisa' with the same hands and visions you were set out to create with.
Your destiny, is like a story, the story of ____________. (Insert your AWESOME name here.) Now, it's an extraordinary story because you're the author, the narrator, the characters, you're the creator... and the story itself is YOU, you are a living story. We dream about our future, planning what we exactly want, but truth is all there will ever be are ghosts behind those empty doors that never truly existed to begin with. We create problems for ourselves that were never truly there, in a sense we unnecessarily make our lives harder than what it truly is.

No one said Life would be easy, and there is no set time to fully achieving your true purpose, whatever your purpose may come to be, it is at your own pace. I must admit to the fact that I tend to give up more often than I'm proud of, but I always seem to amaze myself how many times I've fallen and got back up. How many times I've been broken into a million pieces and still manage to put the pieces back together. I could say that I entirely did that myself, but I'll just be a liar! Life will always be the greatest lesson, the greatest influence in our lives and our biggest enemy and the biggest asset to our external and internal world; we are the deciders "we are the wild youth, chasing visions of our futures, maybe one day, we will reveal the truth..." - (Lyrics by Daughter - Youth)

The beings of life will continue to push and pull at you until you realize that you have more control than you imagine, you can fight back or allow the forces of life to beat at you, step all over you, or you can say "NO, I'm the player, so lets play the game..." And play it to win. If you fail, play it harder, and harder,  and harder. Until you become the best of your world and God's world.
If you want something, simple: If you want to be a writer, then write. If you want to be a painter, pick up the paint brush, if you want to take over your life? Then pick up yourself, pick up all the shit in your life, and plant a garden. What are you waiting for? Turn that chapter, and start writing...
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
 - Marianne Williamson(speech given by Nelson Mandala in 1996.)

 Words of Gratitude:
(I would like to say, thank you to all my inspiration to all of life and everything in it that inspires me to grow and to learn. I truly didn't feel very motivated to do this, but I guess the people in my life and the voice in my head, convinced me to sit here for quite awhile, and push me to write, to try and inspire, to push, and to pick up that controller, and control...)
